11:30 AM: From our friends at AmatuerGolf.com: PGA Show Demo Day: 5 Products We’re Excited For

“Measuring more than 40 acres, the circular practice tee at OCN is a sight to see for any golf fan — especially the golf equipment nut. Seemingly every golf company and product will be well represented at the PGA Show’s Demo Day.” Read More…

10:55 AM: “Just interviewed Meghan Hardin as she was signing her new Wilson calendar. I’ll admit, I was a fan of hers just from seeing her pictures on Instagram and Twitter, but in person she so sweet and down to earth I felt like we had been friends for a long time. She said the entire calendar was shot in two ten-hour days and she had a lot of fun playing dress-up. In fact, she describes herself as a “girly tomboy” who likes to dress up while playing against the boys. Meghan is definitely a Back9er!” – Charles Everett, Back9Network
